Chapter 24, Wave Optics C HAPTER 24 Conceptual Questions C1. In a Young’s double-slit experiment, both the wavelength and the slit separation are increased by 50%. What happens to the distance between two adjacent bright fringes? a. It increases by 50%. b. It decreases by 50%. c. The distance stays the same. d. The distance increases by a 100% or more. C2. In a Young’s double-slit experiment, what happens to the angular separation between the fringes when the wavelength is increased at the same time that the slit separation is decreased? C3. A Young’s double-slit experiment is performed in air and then the apparatus is submerged in water. What happens to the fringe separation, and what can be used to explain the change, if any? C4. Diffraction grating #1 has half the lines/cm that diffraction grating #2 does. When used with a certain wavelength of light, both gratings give first order maxima. Which of the following statements is true for the same wavelength of light. a. Both gratings must also give second order maxima. b. Grating #1 must give a second order maximum. c. Grating #2 must give a second order maximum. d. It is possible that neither grating gives a second order maximum. C5. Light travels from outside a building to inside through a pane of glass. Which of the following is true regarding the phase change upon reflection in the case? glass. 155

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
